Astro-image of the Day: Lunar eclipse next week

On February 20, 2008, between 7:40pm and 11:00pm US Central time, we'll have the opportunity to watch the Moon fade to dark red as the Earth's shadow takes a huge bite out of it. This will be the last total Lunar eclipse for nearly three years, so don't miss it!

This map shows where in the world will have the best views. The Moon will be full and in the constellation Leo, right near Saturn.
